Teaching Counting with Sesame Street Classics

Posted on July 3, 2012. Filed under: Elementary math, Math Centers | Tags: , , , |


All these Counting Videos are You Tube.  Just download them on your thumbdrive (google youtube downloader and it will explain how) and then you can show them in your class.  You could also just go to Sesame Street because all their videos are up there.  These are tooooo funny and very educationally entertaining!  You could also set these up in a math center and let the students watch them and sing along.

Classic Sesame Street:  Roll call for numbers video!  Great for kindergarten and beginning first grade!

Another Sesame Street Classic: Number Elimination

This isn’t Sesame Street but it’s really good too! The Big Number Count Song (nice catchy tune)
